WINONA, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities located 15 people who ran from a vehicle after it rolled over in northern Arizona.

KTVK-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1fedkc5 ) that the DPS and Coconino County Sheriff's Office say several people fled the scene Friday night near Winona, which is 10 miles east of Flagstaff.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says the vehicle rolled on eastbound Interstate 40 around 7:30 p.m. Some witnesses report as many as 20 people may have been in the vehicle.

The DPS says no other occupants were found, and the search was called off.

Officials say six people were admitted to a local hospital with serious injuries that were not life-threatening.

Four people were found around a campfire, and two others knocked on doors looking for help.

The DPS says child protective services took in three minors, and the remaining adults went to a local shelter.
